Cooking with Mrs. Aguila

Hello Lovely Treasures,

I am doing a recipe post! Say what?? Mrs. Aguila blogging about a recipe AND cooking? Oh me, Oh my!!
Well let's do this! I actually got this recipe from my friend on Facebook, Tracey Scott. She shared a photo and it looked so delicious that I asked her for the recipe and she was sweet enough to comment with the recipe right away.
So here it is. Tracey is calling this dish, The Ultimate Veggie Stir Fry and best of all she mentioned it was "lite and fit".  Winning with this recipe.
Recipe: ingredients.
2 zucchini, 1 bunch of asparagus, 1/2 green pepper, 3 small sweet red/yellow peppers, 1/2 jalapeƱo with seeds, 1/4 onion, 2 cloves of garlic. Salt your shrimp slightly

1.  Slice all veggies and put in hot pan with 2 Tbsps. olive oil.

2.  Garlic first then peppers and onions. Let cook down 2 min.
3.  Add zucchini and asparagus.
4.  Add salt and garlic pepper and cover 4 min.
5.  Add shrimp (if electric stove turn off heat).
6.  Add a 1/4 cup of water cover until shrimp turns pink.

So I didn't have any of the veggies on hand so I had to go to the market and buy all the ingredients.
The photos depict each step as I went along so you could get a visual to help you along.

My tips: 
*Make sure to slightly salt the shrimp (My dish came out a bit on the bland side) I did add some seasoning to it but I think it needed a little more.
*Make sure not to leave out the jalapeno (Especially if you are like me and like spicy food) For whatever reason, I totally forgot to slice up my jalapeno which would've given this that nice kick.
*Make sure to only put 1/4 cup water. (I assumed it was to little bit and added a little more) It had a lot of liquid and that could be, partly why the flavor was bland.

Overall, I really liked this recipe and so did Mr. Aguila and best of all it is lite and fit which is what I am looking for right now.  Besides a lot of slicing veggies, this recipe is pretty simple.  I have a lot of the veggies left over so I am going to attempt to make this one more time and make sure to follow my tips or stick to the recipe step by step.

I numbered the steps for you for an easier follow so leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried, will try, would like to try this recipe?
